I am looking for information on Sorbonne by Berthold AG.  The font was designed in 1905 and might be based on Cheltenham and/or Gloucester.

I am mainly interested in which tradition it belongs to and which associations it gives (say, Romantic, academic, 19th Century and so on).

Hope someone can help!

Sorbonne is a »Scotch Roman« a class of sturdy, general purpose types of Scottish origin, widely used in the US in the 19th century.
